DIGEST OF SB13 (Updated March 26, 2003 2:04 PM - DI 84)

Newly discovered evidence. Provides that if a person is sentenced to death and has completed state postconviction review proceedings, the person may file a written petition with the supreme court seeking to present undiscovered evidence challenging the person's guilt or the appropriateness of the death sentence, if the person also notifies the attorney general. Requires the supreme court to determine, with or without a hearing, whether the person has presented previously undiscovered evidence that undermines confidence in the conviction or sentence, and permits the supreme court to remand the cause to the trial court for an evidentiary hearing; however, the supreme court may neither make a determination in the person's favor nor remand the cause to the trial court without providing the attorney general with an opportunity to be heard on the matter.
